Two decades of distributed global radiation time series across a mountainous semiarid area (Sierra Nevada, Spain)

Cristina Aguilar, Rafael Pimentel, and María J. Polo

Data sets

Time series of distributed global radiation data in Sierra Nevada (Spain) at different scales from historical weather stations C. Aguilar, R. Pimentel, and M. J. Polo

Short summary
This work presents the reconstruction of 19 years of daily, monthly, and annual global radiation maps in Sierra Nevada (Spain) derived using daily historical records from weather stations in the area and a modeling scheme that captures the topographic effects that constitute the main sources of the spatial and temporal variability of solar radiation. The generated datasets are valuable in different fields, such as hydrology, ecology, or energy production systems downstream.
